We are looking to give back a little this holiday season, so we have signed up to volunteer in the Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) gift room in Boulder.  If you are interested in participating, you will need to complete a Volunteer Application and they do require that volunteers are vaccinated against COVID-19.  We have worked in this gift room before and it's so fun to see the families in need be able to pick up some gifts that they can put under the tree for their kids at Christmas.  Sometimes they bring their children to help them shop and you get to see the excitement in their faces as they see what their different options are. 

Given the shift will be during dinnertime, we will likely plan to head somewhere nearby afterwards to grab dinner and spend a little time connecting/catching up.

Gift Station Monitor (4 people)

Gift station monitors will be positioned at designated stations where participants will pick up age-appropriate gifts from tables located throughout the gift room, socially-distanced from each volunteer. The role will be to monitor gift pick-up, maintain overall order and flow through the gift station, and restock gifts as inventory is depleted. We anticipate approximately 40 family representatives will visit the gift room per volunteer shift, adequately spaced and single file, to make for a safe and satisfying experience for families and volunteers.

Exit Monitor (1 person)

This volunteer will be positioned at the end of the gift tables. They will usher families toward a final gift selection area, and direct families to the exit area in a swift, yet polite manner. This position will also replenish gifts to age-specific zones as needed. We anticipate approximately 40 family representatives will visit the gift room per volunteer shift, adequately spaced and single file, to make for a safe and satisfying experience for families and volunteers.

Gift Room - Entrance Facilitator (1 person)

 Gift Room Entrance Facilitators will be positioned both inside and outside, in front of the Gift Room entrance, and will move in and out of the building facilitating the flow of participants during the entrance process. The role will be to greet and welcome participants to EFAA’s Gift Room and to ensure a smooth entry process for participants. Entrance Facilitators will answer questions, inform participants of the process for Gift Room access, monitor the line of participants wishing to visit the gift room ensuring adequate safe distancing and mask-wearing, and assist with overall direction of participant flow into the gift room.
